This week I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:

She's determined to make it--and she doesn't need a man's help to do it.

When her beloved Samuel succumbs to cholera in the summer of 1838, Molly McGarvie is heartbroken but determined to take care of herself and her children. 

And when Samuel's unscrupulous brother takes over the family business, Molly must head out on her own, leaving her old life behind. It's a dangerous journey, but somehow she must find a way to make a living, keep her family together, and fend off some over-eager suitors.

Here are my thoughts:
I downloaded this book as a free kindle book on our Memorial Day vacation.  I actually thought it was an Amish book, but was mistaken.

Molly McGarvie endures more than any one person should in a lifetime- and it all happens over the course of a year!  This book had a lot of interesting events packed into it.  But for some reason, it just fell flat for me.  I liked the characters well enough, but none of the story lines really drew me in.  Over all, I gave this one three stars.
